're talking about kids killing kids in the projects. with me, tio hardiman and harold pollack. you heard the man. what do you think? >> i certainly think that we need to have a sense of urgency. i think the part of mr. kass' comment that i agreed with was this is a really serious problem. i listened to your earlier problem on a fiscal cliff which is really an artificial crisis created by dysfunction in washington. and i'm thinking, i wish we had the same urgency in washington about bringing resources to places like chicago to help deal with these problems we see in some other areas that are no more important. i do think listening to your report, it's important to know that there's lots of things we can do. with two local nonprofit partners, we did a randomized trial in 16 schools in chicago of an intervention that helped kids basically with their social and emotional skills. and we found a really strong reduction in violent arrests among the kids that participated in that intervention. there's a lot of good ideas for dealing with guns. i think you can listen to these reports and get a se
